Joins It is the place where two or more bones join. Some joints, such as those of the skull, are fixed; in them the bones are firmly joined together.
In other joints, called joints, the bones are mobile and allow the skeleton to perform movements.
The bones of a joint are held in place by ligaments, resilient cords made up of fibrous connective tissue. Ligaments are firmly attached to the membranes that line the bones.
